Velocity of Autumn Broadway Play Tickets
The Velocity of Autumn
Brooklyn, NY: One mother. One son. One hundred Molotov cocktails. You’re invited.

Academy Award® winner Estelle Parsons (Bonnie and Clyde, August: Osage County) and two-time Tony Award® winner Stephen Spinella (Angels in America, Lincoln) earned rave reviews from critics and audiences alike in the new American Play The Velocity Of Autumn at the Arena Stage in Washington D.C. Now this powerhouse duo is bringing their extraordinary chemistry to Broadway!

The Velocity of Autumn swirls around Alexandra, a 79-year-old artist in a showdown with her family over where she'll spend her remaining years. In Alexandra's corner are her wit, her volcanic passion and the fact that she's barricaded herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with enough Molotov cocktails to take out the block. But her children have their own secret weapon: estranged son Chris who returns after 20 years crawls through Alexandra's second floor window, and becomes the family’s unlikely mediator. No sooner are the words "Hi, Mom" uttered than the emotional bombs start detonating. The Velocity of Autumn is a wickedly funny and wonderfully touching discovery of the fragility and ferocity of life.

“Estelle Parsons gives a bracing, honest and often deliciously funny performance.” – The New York Times

“You’re in the presence of actors of top rank. The team of Parsons and Spinella feels right for almost any occasion.” The Washington Post

“Estelle Parsons gives a stellar & sublime performance.” Variety
